Cheryl Young spent over 35 years supporting top management of organisations to introduce and implement change, and build capability in line with their purpose. This included work in organisational development and design, culture change, large-scale whole system interventions, and leadership team development. Her approach was to work in partnership with leaders helping them see their organisations more clearly, explore possibilities, and implement practical approaches to complex situations. She worked with different national cultures, often through international joint ventures and alliances in multi-national organisations in sectors such as energy, satellite technology, international banking, food and drink, universities, public sector and NGO’s. She has a BA in Psychology from Simon Fraser University in her native British Columbia and an MSc from University of London. Having retired from direct client work, she now mentors and supervises external and internal OD&D consultants in the practical application of OD&D in complex systems.
